this race really start to tighten and then move in governor romney's direction. come thursday morning the narrative of this race is going to change. >> romney has been preparing with senator rob portman who filled in as obama during john mccain's 2008 prep. the president practicing with jor kerry playing the role of romney. kerry is a good fit since the parallels between his '04 and current one is overwhelming. can romney get the post-debate bounce kerry did in '04 and take it one step further and turn it into something kerry couldn't do eight years ago. in '04 president bush had a six-point lead before the debates but kerry's performance boosted him tying the men for the final debate but it was senator kerry in december '04 and not president elect kerry. the national polls are close her today than eight years ago but the numbers in key battlegrounds today tell an obama victory story. democratic strategist steve el mendorf, kerry's deputy campaign manager in '04. how are you? >> good, how are you. >> tell me about why your guy won the debates and lost the election and what that says p
very close along those lines. right now, though, for the moment, the race looks like mitt romney is slipping and obama is in front. >>neil: i was talking about an easy electoral win to the president if you buy the polls, and i don't, but the popular vote is tight. on to what is happening in the swing states, republican governors like to point out and we will elaborate on that, wait a minute. we are running these states, you are seeing the improvements in a last them because republican governors are exacting the changes. what do you say do that? >>guest: it complicates mitt romney's tack. he is trying to make the case that obama is not good for the economy and we are worse off than four years ago but in a lot of states, in florida rick scott and in ohio, john kasich, they have unemployment rates under the national average. romney has had his message undercut. >>neil: where does that come? when times are good the incumbent benefits and the times are bad, he doesn't. the governor is not inconsequential although he or should be in the scheme of things, if they are not up for election
it will be hard to get back in this race. >> mitt romney has to avoid be appearing detached. his to-do list, the three cs show compassion, that he's competent and that he indeed can connect to voters. >> on those three cs, that's where he's got to really do well. >> reporter: while they lead in the polls, team obama know that debates can be a game-changer. he needs to avoid appearing irritable aor impatient. >> they need him to answer questions short, concise. >> the pressure is on for this debate. it could be a huge audience. anywhere between 50 million to 65 million may tune in to see these two men square off on wednesday night. >> david, great to see you live. >>> let's bring in "this week" host george stephanopoulos. the goal wednesday night is for each candidate to focus on the other person's weakness. >> exactly. to avoid a justin bieber moment. i think obviously, there's much more pressure as david said on mitt romney. he's got to force an error out of president obama, he wants to dominate the coverage coming out of the debate so that he can get some momentum. on one hand, he has to
for governor romney. >> jen, do you think this race is winnable for mitt romney? >> we're going to run in every state like we're five points down and we've always said this race was going to be close, so our message to our supporters is don't be complacent. don't rest on any polls. put your blinders on. keep focus on the playbook. we'll sleep and hopefully celebrate on november 7th. we know there's going to be twists and turns. it's a narrower path than i think we would like, but still, 38 days is a long time to go. >> she's got to say that, right? she's got to get her people out to vote. i want to ask you because there's been so much criticism of the polls from the rom thi side of things. people have said the polls assume more democrats are going to turn out. at cnn, our polls do not assume that and chris wallace, fox news, said the criticism of the polls crazyness. he said no self-respecting pollster in the country would a plig party, so even fox doesn't seem to be backing the conspiracy theorys on your side. >> all i'm doing is trying to explain there are different polls. one of the numbers
the race tied and if you look at a lot of these polls coming out across the country, romney and obama are tied with independents. that's a key indicator for your viewer to keep watching. if romney's tied with independents, then it's a question of the turnout model. every number i see shows republicans very enthusiastic. that shows this race continues to be tight and winnable for governor romney. >> jen, do you think this race is winnable for mitt romney? >> we're going to run in every state like we're five points down and we've always said this race was going to be close, so our message to our supporters is don't be complacent. don't rest on any polls. put your blinders on. keep focus on the playbook. we'll sleep and hopefully celebrate on november 7th. we know there's going to be twists and turns. it's a narrower path than i think we would like, but still, 38 days is a long time to go. >> she's got to say that, right? she's got to get her people out to vote. i want to ask you because there's been so much criticism of the polls from the romney side of things. people have said the poll
happen it to mitt romney to republican race as cross the country. "the daily beast" says the gop is suffering from self-dell lugs syndrome. joining me are three quarters of nbc's newest show "the cycle," krystal ball, toure, and s.e. cupp. >> steve is here as the holy ghost, right? >> anyway, okay. so krystal ball, i want to start with the latest comments from todd akin. they kay claire miss cass kill unlady-like. >> unbelievable. >> among them newt gingrich, rick santorum, jim demight not, high profile. do you agree that this could have a national trickle-down effect here? >> i think it has a trickle-down effect and it has a trickle-up effect as well. look at mitt romney's polls in ohio he's trailing among women by 25 points. so the overall impression of the republican party as not getting women, as being very unfriendly towards women, as not scientifically understanding women has had a negative impact on the gop. it's unbelievable that in the very week when he finally -- when the deadline passed that he could no longer get out of the race he comes back out with something else t
in the state a week before the iowa caucuses. by then, it was too late. and he lost a tight race. romney's campaign should have refocused their efforts, but instead, they find themselveses rsloere cast today.t president obama is moving in for the final knockout punch. the obama campaign unveiled a full two-minute television video ad today with president directly addressing viewers. the ad is airing in four swing states, including iowa. it has the look and feel of a candidate's closing argument. >> it's time for a new economic patriotism. rooted in the belief that growing our economy against with a strong, thriving middle cls. read my plan. compare it to governor roey's decide for yourself. thanks for listening. >> the president introduced the theme of economic patriotism into his stump speech at a campaign event in virginia today. >> during campaign season, you always hear a lot about patriotism. well, you know what? it's time for aew economi patism an economic patriotism rooted in the belief that growing our economyegins with a strong and thriving middle class. >> this is a new line in
isn't about winning. polls show romney in a close race with the president, but trailing badly in some of the swing states that will decide the presidential election. well, here is mitt romney, we have heard these words before, sounds as though he's downplaying expectations as they say. take a listen. >> people want to know who is going to win, who is going to score the punches and who is going to make the biggest difference in the arguments they make and there is going to be all the scoring of winning and losing. >> so romney is saying, no, it is not about winning, not about losing, it is about america. but you have a lot of republicans, newt gingrich, for example, saying, hey, mitt romney, get out there, pick a fight, and win it. jim acosta with me now from the romney campaign. the debate, of course, tomorrow night in denver, you, sir, are in littleton, colorado. should we take mitt romney at face value when he says this debate is not about me winning? >> reporter: well, brooke, i think this is all part of the debate expectations game that has been going on for several days now. i th
it if the underdog wins here. but here's what i think has to happen for mitt romney. he needs to bring this race back to a referendum on obama. it was a referendum on president obama for awhile as any re-election should be, then it was a choice. now it's actually a referendum on mitt romney. he needs to shift the referendum back into the incumbent and have the debate questioners really hold the president to account for some answers in libya, his silence on syria and certainly the economy. >> jennifer, it's going to be a fascinating night, the debate. i can't wait to watch it. there is a point there, barack obama hasn't done a debate now for quite a long time. mitt romney spent most of the year debating and he got better and better. i thought actually he was a very good debater. one of the reasons he won the nomination was his ability to swat away all comers. so i would think this could be a bit of a surprise coming next week, where mitt romney maybe ought to refocus his whole campaign, get momentum and really get after barack obama at a time when barack obama least wants him to. >> i totally agree wi
about the new poll, polling information showing romney is trailing in the race nationwide. tell us more. >> we're getting new polls every day at this point in the race, which is fun for us. a new fox news poll has obama up by 48 to 43 margin over mitt romney. that's in keeping with other polls we have seen recently both nationally and in swing states, you know this poll looks like a lot of others. obama has advantages over romney on the economy and a range of issues. one thing that stood out in the poll is that a lot of voters didn't like how obama's handling the situation in libya. and the romney campaign sort of sees that as well which is why you see them hitting obama so hard on this lately. but there is still a problem here for romney. this is why the debates are so important. romney wants to change the fundamental structure of this race with this debate coming up next wednesday. remember, over 50 million people watched the first presidential debate in 2008. this is going to be a big moment coming up next week, fred, for mitt romney. >> well, let's shift to the u.s. senate and how p

be aggressive in a way that's going to win this race? >> there were so many different models that mitt romney could have pursued and the thing is, he's narrowed his options. about a month ago, two months ago, he needed to make a big play for the midwest. not just ohio, but wisconsin. the time when republican candidates succeed is when they're able to marry those two things together. george w. bush won in 2000, despite a roaring economy under president clinton. everyone thought al gore should crush bush, but he was able to win by talking about issues like education and demonstrating to suburban voters that hey, you can trust me. i'm a safe pair of hands on these issues and mitt romney has had a hard time doing that. what mitt romney needs to do is say look, i'm the candidate who's going to deliver more work and better and higher wages through my plan an there are a few things like energy policy and making the case for tax reform. he's made it much, much harder for himself than he should have. >> go ahead. >> it's a little hard for mitt romney to talk about what he is going to do on health care
the president, analysts say romney must change the trajectory of the race. in a discussion, he acknowledged this is an important opportunity. >> and i think it will give people a chance to understand where we actually stand, as opposed to where our opposition thinks we stand. and then they can make a more informed choice. >> reporter: while both candidates are practicing in private, president obama held a closed-door session this afternoon. and publicly their campaigns are showering the opponents with praise. a message from one expert outlines romney's skills as a prepared, aggressive, debater. the romney campaign is touting president obama's natural gifts and the extensive seasoning under the bright lights of the bright stage. today, in a mock debate, senator john kerry dismissed the idea that the republican nominee is an inexperienced debater, pointing to more than 20 debates. >> oh please, just give me 20 breaks, not just one. >> reporter: but analysts saying given the state of the race, the burden may be on the challenger. >> he has to do something to get people to take a deep breath, a

point in the race for president. both president obama and mitt romney have stopped campaigning this weekend instead burrowing into hard-core debate prep cramming their facts and honing their one-liners. it's "your voice, your vote" with just 37 days left until the election. abc's david kerley who usually joins us from washington is here at the desk. good to see you. >> nice to be here. you know, dan, this is a really big debate. this is part performance, part policy. the stakes are always high. but for mitt romney, some are saying it is make or break. and for the president, leading in the polls, it's a matter of not letting his challenger back into the race. president obama travels to nevada this morning where he will spend the next three days in debate camp reportedly at this posh resort in henderson. and he heads into the debate with the latest gallup tracking poll still showing mr. obama holding a lead. this morning it's six points. >> this is the ball game for mitt romney right now because if he doesn't do well in this debate, it's going to be hard for him to get back in th
in the senate race. congressman todd akin coined the phrase "legitimate rape." romney asked him to drop out. race. he refused. he admitted going to jail a couple decades ago, spoke out against fair pay for women and a key staffer is comparing him to david koresh during the siege at waco. she meant it as a compliment. texas senator john cornyn announced the republican senate committee will not put any money into akin's race. he said i just think that it's not a winnable race. so it's pretty much a business decision. but former speaker newt gingrich threw his support behind akin earlier this week. he also get mike huckabee's report, senator kit bond are following suit. the chair of the republican national committee said he would not support akin not matter what. >> are you going to support him? >> no, no. it can be tight. we're not going to send him a penny. >> but reince priebus may be changing his behind on akin, too. today he told cbs news "as chairman of the party i have an obligation to make sure we win as many seats in the senate as possible. the republicans need the race, no question a
steady showers has a feel of a race against time. a new poll quinnipiac finds romney trailing the president by ten points in ohio, nine points in florida and 12 in pennsylvania. an abc "the washington post" poll may explain why. 54% said they had an unfavorable view of romney's comments on voters who don't pay taxes. romney told cnn he's not worried about the numbers. >> we're taking our message to the people of ohio and across the country. and polls go up and down. but frankly you're going to see the support that i need to become president on election day. >> reporter: but he's facing some strong economic headwinds in ohio where the governor, john casic, touted his state's recovery at a romney event. >> i hope you all know ohio's coming back from 48th in job creation to number four. number one in the midwest. >> reporter: joined by gulf legend and ohio native jack nicholas, romney said the president shouldn't get a mulligan or do-over. >> now there's over $16 trillion in debt. if he were re-elected, i can assure you almost $20 trillion in debt. >> reporter: asked about the fi
who live in states that don't have any contested races this year, when mr. romney is in massachusetts, it's not a swing state but massachusetts does have a really contested senate race. republican senator scott brown is trying desperately, very desperately, to fend off a challenge from democratic candidate elizabeth warren. i use the word desperate on purpose. after releasing one ad attacking elizabeth warren on the basis of race, after his staffers were caught childishly mocking native americans with the whole tom hawk chop and war whoop thing, after the cherokee nation asked scott brown to apologize for that and he refused to do so, after all that scott brown has put out a second ad just today again attacking elizabeth warren on the basis of race. the scott brown campaign must have some amazing internal poll numbers showing that a race-based campaign is working wonders for him. because i don't know how else you explain this. it's not a whisper campaign, anonymous flyers on windshields in church parking lots like we used to expect for this sort of thing. this comes straight from the

he struggled for years with mental illness. >> gregg: crucial moment coming up in the race for the white house. this coming wednesday, mitt romney and president obama will be squaring off in their very first debate. no political handlers on the stage and no advisors, no 30 seconds commercials. two men going on one on one with the debate posing a crucial test for both candidates. how big are the stakes? joining us is erin mcpike national reporter. good to see you. as the challenger who is admittedly behind in the polls, governor romney is an underdog, does that give him an advantage and if he does well with let's say 50 million people watching, could it reversed direction of his campaign? >> it's very possible. romney campaign has said all along that the debates are going to be very important because it's a chance to see mitt romney square off with president obama and visions for the country. we are starting to see both campaigns to lower expectations for both candidates but this is last chance that romney have to voters take him seriously. >> gregg: i think the trick is for
a lot ground on governor romney in swing states. today, as polls show the race is tightening in those swing states, we are seeing this. everything from a presidential wedding anniversary to coverage of the candidate eye blinking. in surprise to my next guest, pat caddell. i am looking at the polls that i check each day, and, whoa, whoa, whoa, it is close again. now, what do you make of it? >>pat: you know why. i gave a speech on it a week ago and i have been on this. the press has gone to places, the mainstream immediate why it has never gone in support of a candidate, both in terms of the coverage of libya, what we are not being told, and, also, on the polls. they have a narrative. the narrative is obama is winning big. they have producing -- been producing polls that show that. they are getting a lot of democrats and they doing polls on race, age, sex and more. these are news organizations that are supposed to be broke, cutting news staffs and they are spending thousands and thousands on the state presidents that are very, in my opinion, flawed. what they doing, is a narrative that
the ryan pick as i said, very nice move in the polls for mitt romney. that was a real strengthening moment. what do you see as the major factor that brought us to the numbers we're at right now in this race? >> i think romney's had a struggle the last couple weeks. obviously the 47% thing last week was not good. i think he is getting back in his groove. there is sufficient time to get this thing back on track. it's a narrow place where he has to go to win but i think it is all there. he just has to execute. he now has maximum television everywhere. they have a very strong ground game as does the obama team. it is really identifying voters and get them out and they're voting already. key thing, 30, 40% of the voters will vote before election day. you have to make sure everyone of those that are your voters get out to the polls. martha: what about this notion there is battle going on for white male votes? that they went obama basically in 2008, swung back during the midterms and voted for republican candidates during the midterm elections? you know is that, are they undecided this time aroun
romney trailing by four points. analysts say romney needs to change the trajectory of the race. but his running mate, paul ryan insists, he's not concerned, even while acknowledging campaign mistakes. >> we've had some miss steps, but at the end of the day, the choice is really clear and we're giving people a clear choice. >> governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> reporter: for days, both sides have been tamping down debate expectations. >> we expected all along that governor romney will have a good night. he's prepared more than any candidate in history. and he's shown himself to be a very, very good debater through the years. >> sometimes we expect a major break through. you know, the comment that doesn't happen very often. >> reporter: new jersey governor chris christie predicted romney would do extremely well and turn the race upside down. >> thursday morning, the entire narrative of this race is going to change. >> reporter: and if the president is trying to avoid the campaign over the next several days, natalie, it will be tough to do. if he turns on the local new
shrinking, florida's looking like a must-win for romney. but today, his runningmate, ckman paul ryan, focused on new hampshire, with four electoral votes. but ryan said that could be a difference in the race that will come to a handful of states. >> thank you, granite staters, for sending mitt romney to the white house and barack obama back to chicago. [cheering] >> reporter: the campaign shifts into a different stage this week, with wednesday night's high-stakes showed own showdown between about the barack obama and mitt romney. >> every change that has happened in a debate, if you look at the history, it's changed because of somebody's mannerisms or style -- they did badly or well. >> reporter: both candidates will spend the next few days in intense sessions. romney may have the most on the line. his campaign is looking that the for a chance for a game changer. abc news, washington. >> one of the country's best-imeen newspaper mat nats day died. arsure solsburger was 86. he page passed away. his paper published the pentagon papers. known as punch, the former marine captain was a fi
in this race, mitt romney would have to get double john mccain's margin of 18 points among the white working class in this election. that's youth turnout doesn't change among minority's despite the shifts in eligible voters. if this does get realize, let's say minority vote share goes up by couple of points, 26% as was in 2008 to 28% in 2012, and again if the white college graduate and minority support stays about the same, it means mitt romney would have to get north of 40-point margin among white working-class voters to actually win the election, to win the popular vote. so let's take look at where we are now based on a reasonable came out. it's the gold standard for polls. a pew research center. no one else -- no offense to anyone else in the room who has april. they really do it right. it's pretty reliable stuff. they give you a lot of interesting demographic breaks tradition as among likely voters that obama is leading now by eight points. if you look at the average of the national polls as a bit high relative to the average. the average has been running about four-point. if you look at
